Improved functionality in your outdoor hardscape area
Sitting walls are a professional touch to any patio and they offer additional, functional sitting speace in your outdoor environment. Our sitting walls can be constructed in a segemented wall application using precast concrete blocks such as E.P. Henry, Belgard, or Techo-Bloc—or with a masonry application using cinder block, a scratch coat, and your choice of veneer stone with a bluestone treadstock cap.
Sitting walls have become a very popular addition to your traditional hardscape patio. The reason being, is you are drastically improving your sitting room.

Our customers have found that this ergonomic use of space is both functional and efficient. Sitting walls are useful with outdoor dining areas, near fire pits, or for everyday use to use for further purpose with seasonal decorations and planted pots.

Garden walls are for aesthetic use as well as functional use.

Retaining & General Walls
A wall can help with retaining a garden, grade of ground, or a aesthetic feature
Retaining walls are one of the classic examples of a functional landscape application. Whether it be for drainage concerns, grading concerns, leveling a hardscape area, changing elevation, or any number of applications, retaining walls are functionally pleasing within the landscape. Retaining walls can be created using natural stone product in a dry-stack fieldstone look, or a more formal segmented wall.
Retaining walls have become a common feature within landscapes to hold grade, transition spaces, and create functionality. The height of your wall depends on the grade change. At Holly Days, we specialize in transit work to ensure your grading is surveyed to the proper heights. Our hardscape professionals have experience to make even the most difficult applications work with some amazing finished results.
Retaining walls create the opportunity to work in landscape lighting and offer a wide range of product materials such as segmented wall block, natural stone, and masonry veneer applications. Retaining walls require excavation, proper footing or base materials, and recieve a cap at completion for a finished look.
A natural wall that makes a big statement
Boulder walls offer a natural look to any landscape design, while offering function in the form of a retaining wall. All boulder walls begin with excavating a shelf in the grade and individual custom placing each rock. We offer a wide variety of boulder wall installations such as PA fieldstone boulders to Wissahickon schlist, and West Mountain boulders.
Boulder walls are a natural design element that makes a bold statement. While bold, it is a subtle landscape design technique that flows naturally with the landscape and remains budget friendly, while being quick to construct. It is a unique feature that adds an uncommon element to make your landscape standout. Boulder walls create curb appeal for landscapes that have various slopes, elevation changes, or anyone looking to use natural stone applications.
Our design & build team frequents the installation of boulder to enhance your landscape and fir natural features into your landscape’s personality. Boulder walls have gained popularity in landscape tactics in the past few years due to their ease of construction and value within the investment.
A transition that helps you get to your destination
Steps offer a transition in your landscape from one feature to the next. Steps are constructed using the proper base materials or footings, similar to a wall application. Steps can be constructed using a variety of segmented wall block such as Belgard, E.P. Henry, or Techo-Bloc. They can also be constructed like a masonry application using cinder block and veneer stone. Steps are capped for tread, grip, and safety.
Steps have become a common feature within landscapes to transition out of a home or from one feature to another. Depending on the grade of your property stairs may be essential in helping you get to where you need to go. Our hardscape professionals have experience to make even the most difficult transitions work functionally for your space.
